Heh, Michael Weiner hate's most everybody, to include Bush and Limbaugh-lol. (I disagree on his stance on pot, though). He's had very good interviews with Wrangle and Schumer-very civil and insightful...
Hey, I'll listen to just about everyone, then I cull the truth from the BS. You can find truth in the strangest of places if you look at it right.
It takes commonsense and disernment. Don't throw out the baby with the bathwater. Even if i have to grit me teeth, I'll give a good listen to anyone, THEN make my "Judgements".
If pressed for a label, I'm a conservative-Liberitarian, old school. JFK would be considered a conservative these daze, i suspect.
Now Bush, imo, is a disgrace to conservativism
and Dean or Murtha, to liberalism, (again, imo).
From experience, some of the most intolerent people I've met are SF and Berkeley liberals. But enough already!
I'll stick to GD subjects (you're welcome)

With you Charlie. I'm sure not one of the stereotypical Deadheads that the media has in mind. That said, neither of our two political parties out there seem to be practicing their ideaology very well. Makes for some very vague and ambiguous leadership. Their stranglehold on power also prevents any kind of third party from rising up, and Ive never seen a time when it's more needed.

imagine a 3rd party not owned by lobbiests, special interests or big business- I'm all for that!
Or a senator/representative that actually votes the will of their constituants. I can't fault Pelosi or Barbara Lee for that...but we do need a multi-party system because the Democraps & Republicraps 99% owned, imo
In our present system, no good honest person has a chance, or would EVER be in a position to be elected. If they did, they'd probably be shot by some sort of organized darkness.
Which, btw, was stated/discussed by the oft hated Savage one. Any Coast to Coast fans out there?

Well that's a fact - about anyone honest having a chance. Gone are the days when a PResident could be a REAL person. Hell, it is impossible to get elected without making promises and telling people they can get more services for free.The way I see it is BOTH parties are beholden to BIG Corporate money and the means they use to get over on people is playing to the Religious right. I mean what chance does an honest person have when the majority of people that vote actually beleive this country was founded on Christianity? Also the majority of people think their tax dollars go to the poor instead of corporate subsidies.

Well I'll agree with you on the intolerance of Berkeley type liberals. I see the same thing up here with Sierra Club types. Having said all that, after going back to the Bay area it sure was refreshing to me to be amongst liberals other than the right wingers up here who think the 2nd ammendment is the only one. I am SO sick of people voting for these make beleive morals then wondering why they can't afford healthcare. Everybody wants to defend all these poor companies like Walmart who are just after all hardworking entrepaneurs,then they wonder why their standard of living keeps going down.

Sorry to rant but you have to understand that up here EVERYTHING is all the " liberals" fault and yet the left allmost NEVER have any political clout up here. Alaska Republicans are about as corrupt as they come but people insist on still voting for them because they're against abortion and have an R by their name.Oh and all Alaskans care about is not ever having to pay for a damn thing.

ok, sorry. I'm mostly a libertarian myself except I happen to think that as long as money is getting spent unconstitutionally I'd rather it go to people that need it which doesn't include corporate subsidies.
